Came across the forum in desparation, and hope someone may have a brainy idea.
I have a '53 plate 156 and a couple of weeks ago the 'door open' light remained on the dashboard. Slamming the boot a little harder seemed to suffice, but then things started to get even more interesting!
When I tried to lock the car, it locked and them immediately unlocked, indicating that a door was ajar.
I wondered if the two metal prongs on either side of the lower boot catch were out of alignment (if that's what they are?), and tried to adjust the catch.
However it seems that there was a decent contact.
I then tried closing the boot catch mechanism with the boot lid open, and the central locking worked fine.
I can see how the sensor is operated on the upper boot lid (and my neighbours will testify to the fact that the alarm works!), but by looking through the ski hatch I can see that the light inside the boot remains on even though the boot is securely closed.
I assume that for some reason the car thinks that the boot is open, and therefore won't allow the central locking to arm.
Would appreciate any input, as I'm out of ideas, and the car is sitting by the side of the road unlocked!
Response to email@example.com
would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
